About the Author

Dan Zahavi is Professor of Philosophy and Director of Center for Subjectivity Research at the University of Copenhagen. He was elected member of Institut International de Philosophie in 2001 and of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters in 2007. From 2001 to 2007 he served as president of the Nordic Society for Phenomenology, and he is currently co-editor in chief of Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences. In his systematic work, Zahavi has mainly been investigating the nature of selfhood, self-consciousness, and intersubjectivity. His most important publications include Husserl und die transzendentale Intersubjektivitat (Kluwer, 1996), Self-awareness and Alterity (Northwestern University Press, 1999), Husserl's Phenomenology (Stanford University Press, 2003), Subjectivity and Selfhood (MIT Press, 2005), and, with Shaun Ghallagher, The Phenomenological Mind (Routledge, 2008).


The book is particularly interesting for those who have been following Zahavi's voluminous and important work for some time now * Fredrik Svenaeus, Journal of Phenomenological Psychology *
Dan Zahavi's newest book, Self and Other, gathers together and expands on his rich body of work on selfhood and intersubjectivity ... The exegetical work alone makes this book valuable for anyone interested in the phenomenological tradition and its contemporary relevance. The books value, however, exceeds its historical acumen by placing explanations of classical phenomenology alongside a comprehensive review of recent work from both empirical psychology and analytic philosophy. In short, this book will be of interest to anyone who cares about the myriad ways that our social existence shapes and is shaped by the mind. * Philip J. Walsh, Husserl Studies *
This book is an exemplar for those working on phenomenological approaches to mind ... Highly recommended. * Choice *
Self and Other should be recognized as an important text in contemporary philosophy of subjectivity and intersubjectivity. ... Zahavi's writing gives voice to a philosophy which equally honors the phenomenological and the analytic traditions, bringing these two approaches into a collaborative, rather than competitive, relationship. ... He surveys complex ideas with great clarity, without ignoring the ambiguity and richness of the debate. * Sarah Pawlett Jackson, Metaphysics *
There are several impressive features of this book. First and foremost, it presents a coherent, cogent, and nuanced account of how we experience ourselves and others as minded, embodied, and embedded agents, as individuals and as members of groups and communities. Zahavi's positions are both phenomenologically and textually very well-informed as he works through the contributions of key figures from the phenomenological tradition on the issues he addresses. Equally impressive is the range of figures from outside of phenomenology, be it from analytical and other traditions of philosophy or from empirical psychology it introduces and discusses. * Thomas Nenon, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online *
While continuing the ongoing discussion of Zahavis works, Self and Other presents his views in a rich historical light and offers a wide treatment of debates about selfhood. * Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal *
